Marissa was a lifesaver for our family. As a working mom, I was so anxious trying to find the right fit for our family. Marissa put our nerves at ease and found us the perfect nanny. My husband and I would not have the ease we do going to work every day if not for Marissa searching high and low to find us our nanny. And should we need a last-minute fill-in, Marissa is on the ball and can find someone quickly. Her candidates are all vetted and she narrows the very vast field to a select group of wonderful caretakers. This took a lot of pressure off of us and we are so grateful for Marissa.

We were skeptical at first about using a nanny referral service but I have to admit Marissa was a lifesaver to us. We had no idea what finding a nanny would involve and waited until the last minute. When we were introduced to Marissa, we knew instantly using MBR Nanny Network was the way to go. She spent a lot of time telling us not only about her company and experience, but educating us on how to find the nanny that would meet our personal needs. Every time we spoke to her we felt like we were speaking to an old friend. She is extremely responsive and professional – I can’t remember a single time that I called her and she did not answer or have a response to me within minutes. Most importantly, she was able to place us with an incredible nanny in a matter of days.
Marissa literally took care of everything – advertising, interviewing, checking references, background checks, etc. It allowed us to focus on raising our daughter and preparing to return to work. Marissa’s knowledge of the Philadelphia nanny scene is unmatched – she knows where to find the best nannies, red flags to look out for, how to match the skills of a particular nanny with the needs of a child. The comfort of knowing that she would find us a caring and responsible person to care for our daughter was priceless. I highly recommend her services. If I could hire her to organize my life, I would in a heartbeat.

Finding a responsible, caring nanny is a challenge. Working with Marissa made the process simple, and gave us peace of mind as we made our choice. Marissa located, interviewed and vetted candidates for us to then meet, and helped us explore our needs so that we could find the nanny that was right for us and for our children, ages four and one-month. Marissa was also a great resource for candid and sensible advice during the process, and showed great energy, calm and a positive attitude while helping us with every step — from the first consultation, to nanny background checks, to checking in after our new nanny started with us, making sure we were comfortable. We were very lucky to have Marissa’s help, and would recommend her highly.

I would like to express my complete satisfaction using the MBR Nanny Network and it’s sitter placement services. We have utilized the service several times and I have complete confidence in the sitters which are placed with my family. Marissa understands the complexities for hiring a caretaker and strives to put parents and child alike at ease. She thoroughly screens all her nanny’s in the network which takes a lot of stress off of me! She responds to any communication very quickly and in fact has placed an “emergency” sitter one night when my privately booked sitter could not make it. She saved the day! I would thoroughly recommend MBR Nanny Network to anyone needing an occasional sitter.

Marissa and her team are the absolute best! Where they differentiate themselves from other nanny placement services is Marissa’s ability to listen carefully to what is and is not working for your family, and objectively assess the type of person that will be the best fit. After meeting my two rambunctious boys, she immediately knew that we need a high energy, creative nanny, who could keep up. She found us the perfect fit for our family and schedule!

Working with Marissa was a dream! Finding a nanny can be very stressful at times and Marissa made it so easy for us. We tell everyone that asks about MBR Nanny service that it was the best money we have ever spent!
